Crime-spree suspect now under grand jury indictment

(WPRI) — A man accused of robbing two local gas stations, then leading police on a high speed chase, is now under grand jury indictment.

In January, police say Monchi Castillo-Cosme and a 16 year old held up a Cranston Shell gas station, then an X-Tra Mart in Coventry about an hour later.

Police pursued them, but officers say the two suspects took off on foot after crashing their car.

Police say they found Castillo-Cosme hours later at a Dunkin’ Donuts. His alleged accomplice was captured a few days later in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Castillo-Cosme is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence County Superior Court  April 25.
